Dogs are our friends and family; teachers, healers, comrades and companions. They bring us laughter, love, and enrich our lives in countless ways. We’re inspired by the way animals touch and transform our lives.
At The Grateful Dog we view ourselves as partners with our customers in tailoring a program that meets the exercise, training, and individual care necessary for the development of each dog’s potential. We are passionate about animals and inspired by learning. Training, handling, and care are based on the latest principals of ethology (the science of animal behavior) and progressive canine learning theory.
Our mission is to offer outstanding, aversive free, positive reinforcement training and care, provided by a highly skilled and dedicated staff. At The Grateful Dog we are uniquely qualified to offer you the standards of care and training you expect and your dog deserves. We take joy in our work, so you can enjoy your dog.
I am a certified training partner with the Karen Pryor Academy of Animal Training and Behavior. KPA is a recognized leader in the field of clicker training. I’m not interested in being the the biggest, but the best. Other facilities cater to weekend drop-ins. I want to know my customers; develop a relationship with them and their dogs. We strive to be both personal and professional, with outstanding skill and integrity. We want the best for your dog.
